Rand Paul Accuses McConnell Of Foul Play

Rand Paul Accuses McConnell Of Foul Play

It’s a case of he said, he said. Senator Rand Paul’s staff heard from state house sources – not anyone on Capitol Hill, but from the state house of Kentucky – that Senator Mitch McConnell had made a deal with the White House to get a certain judicial candidate through.

McConnell, of course, denies it, but sometimes protesting really is too much.

Kentucky’s two Republican senators are trading blame for blowing up the prospective nomination of an anti-abortion attorney to the federal bench, with Sen. Rand Paul accusing Minority Leader Mitch McConnell of forging a “secret deal” with the Biden administration.

“McConnell’s to blame for tanking this because he tried to do it secretly [and] Democrats caught wind up in the state,” Paul told reporters Monday about the failed drive to nominate Chad Meredith as a district court judge in the Bluegrass State.

“We never heard about it from McConnell’s office,” Paul added. “And his people simply said, ‘You can’t do this but we can.’ You know, ‘We’re so powerful, we can do whatever we want.’”

The White House dropped its plans to nominate Meredith last week, pinning the blame on Paul for declining to support him.

“In considering potential District Court nominees, the White House learned that Senator Rand Paul will not return a blue slip on Chad Meredith,” a White House spokesman said, referring to the practice of senators backing the nomination of judges from their home state. “Therefore, the White House will not nominate Mr. Meredith.”

If the White House wanted him, and Rand Paul didn’t, that’s a good enough reason to block the nomination among a lot of Make America Great Again voters.

McConnell further insisted there “was no deal” that Paul was being left out of the loop on, saying Biden’s plan to nominate Meredith was “a personal friendship gesture.”

Uh-huh. Considering how hostile McConnell has been to furthering Trump-era plans and how friendly he is to the Biden Administration at this point, one has to wonder.

Why is McConnell still in the position? Surely, he should have been flung out by now.

McConnell is utterly untrustworthy and KY needs to send him home to stay.
